From The Manufacturer

The TENS 7000 2nd Edition provides prescription strength pain relief and is the best valued OTC digital TENS unit on the market today. Powered by a 9-volt battery, this TENS machine is proven to be a powerful, durable, and easy-to-use. The TENS 7000 unit is the preferred device of physical therapists and physicians to relieve common pain. HOW IT WORKS: The TENS unit sends comfortable impulses through the skin that stimulate the nerve (or nerves) in the treatment area. Treatment can be given on demand or via timed therapy sessions up to 60 minutes. In many cases, this stimulation will greatly reduce or eliminate the pain sensation you feel. Pain relief varies by individual mode selected for therapy and the type of pain you are experiencing. In many people the reduction or elimination of pain lasts longer than the actual period of stimulation (sometimes as much as three to four limes longer). The TENS 7000 comes complete with the device, two (2) pair of lead wires, one (1) four (4) pack of reusable electrodes, one (1) 9-volt battery, a quick start guide instruction manual, and a hard carry case. The TENS unit comes with five (5) powerful therapy modes of operation to tackle the toughest common household or exercise related pain. The modes are: 1) Burst 2) Normal 3) Modulation 4) Strength Duration 1 (SD1) and 5) Strength Duration 2 (SD2). Intensity of the device is controlled via two control knobs that allow you to control the stimulation power of the dual channel pulses. Each channel controls 2 electrode TENS unit pads. The package comes with 4 starter electrode pads(colors may vary) of premium quality and will last multiple sessions. Recommended replacement electrodes are the inTENSity brand or TENS 7000 brands. TENS device comes with a 1 year warranty and is supported by the Roscoe Medical best-in-class support team. NOTE:Please see pages 8 – 10 of the attached instruction manual to see a visual of on/off/on durations of the different Modes the TENS 7000 offers.
